Full description
Wander through 100 acres of beautiful gardens which have been developed from the 1780. Discover the contrast of ornamental grounds and peaceful woodland, meandering waterways and trimmed lawns. Explore the Lime Tree Walk, Granville Garden, the Lady Alice Temple, the Quaker Burial ground and an Ice House.

Imagine the gardens in different times as you walk through the Walled Garden, dating back to the 18th Century. This is a large, four-acre site historically used to produce fruit, vegetables and flowers for the house. As part of the Hillsborough Castle Project in 2018, the gardens have been restored to create a beautiful working and productive garden. See the renovations  complete with dipping pond, crop rotations, seasonal produce, potting sheds, herbaceous borders and an apple orchard.

Unfortunately I arrived at 4 o'clock and didn't leave myself enough time to explore the gardens fully.I thought 2 hours would be plenty of time,but I wasn't expecting how vast they are.I was blown away by the beauty that lies on my doorstep.A photographer's paradise.Stunning.I will be visiting again soon.
